Blessing of De Loa (Rezan) is too powerful, I think. Alexstrasza has a level 20 secondary ability talent, as I'm sure you're aware, Blessing of the Red, which grants a target +500 max hp, but has a 40-second cooldown and cannot target herself. Other than that and a few other numbers, I like the concept, especially Protection of Kings; and while 75 is a lot of armour, 20 globes isn't an early game quest, and I like the catch, it's a neat idea :)

Alextrasa's Blessing of the Red can be cast on ALL allied heroes, while this can only affect one at a time, that's why it gives more health :p , and thank you!

Ahh, that makes sense, I hadn't considered that.
